Sowa Rigpa Institute (SRI) was founded by Dr. Nida Chenagtsang, traditional Tibetan physician and internationally renowned teacher, scholar, and author.
Sowa Rigpa (གསོ་བ་རིག་པ་།) is the Tibetan language word for the traditional medical system of Tibet, translated into English as “the Science of Healing.”
We offer comprehensive and rigorous multi-year professional Sowa Rigpa practitioner trainings as well as non-professional workshops, courses, and public talks that promote self and community care.
Alongside our Tibetan medical educational programs we offer dharma teachings, guided meditation and yoga practices and intensive retreats in the Yuthok Nyingthig, the Vajrayana Buddhist spiritual counterpart of Sowa Rigpa. 
Complementary studies in Tibetan language, mantra healing, Sache (geomancy), astrology and more support students in their ongoing study and practice of the rich healing and spiritual traditions of Tibet. 

Sowa Rigpa Institute is part of a global network of centers, clinics, and educational institutes working together under the guidance of Dr. Nida Chenagtsang.

In-person practical courses and retreats take place at Pure Land Farms in California and a network of Sorig Khang centers around the world.
